REPOST:::::"See You Soon":::Originally from 7-26-2005

This is a post from the day after Nick passed on-- Nothing in it has changed, save the fact that I am learning more and more how much everyday I had with him was a lesson in how to be a better man... He was and is the example of what every man should be, and I'll always love him... That's about it--

So... After 4 months Nick, I'm still missing you...

P.S.... Your sis and her "beau" did sumthin funny for ya... (not that you missed it, but they rule)

And now....





Nicky--

He was my friend, when I thought I wouldn't have any...

I met him in the very beginning of Freshmen year, 1995, and we're just coming up on the 10-year anniversary of our friendship... He was a great guy, always grinning from ear to ear with that big smile of his-- and every time I'd see him, I knew we were going to do something fun. Whether or not it was just going to the Lucheonette or the Diner over the years, anywhere we went was our new place... We were inseparable, anytime one of us was somewhere, everyone would ask where the other was...

He just had this great outlook towards life-- his heart problem gave him that "appreciate every bit of life's little moments" attitude...

He was my IMPROV partner for four years of HS-- Senior year we won best Improv pair... He was THE ACTOR, I was his goofy sidekick... I loved him for every moment we had-- He knew me better than anyone ever knew me, because he was like a brother and more-- My best friend...

I always told him, that if he died, the only one I could ever talk to about it would be him...

He saw it all... all my downfalls and triumphs, and I was there for him through all of the girlfriends, break-ups and other things that come with early adulthood... He was my best man... He is my best man...

He was obsessed with James Dean, and I think it had something to do with his own outlook on life-- I don't think he ever expected to be around as long as he was-- So, everyday was a gift, and a miracle in itself... I appreciate all the time that was given us... He was a shooting star-- Shining Bright for just a brief moment, and then gone--

In his brief time here with us, he affected so many lives... and showed others the importance of taking advantage of being young and impetuous... always daring and never stupid, he took full advantage of every bit of every thing he could take part in...

"Life's too fuckin short to always be responsible, always keep yer eye on the clock, an ear on the boss, and nose to the grindstone..... once in a while i want my eye to new adventures, my ear to the music, and my nose to the wind of 70 miles an hour in an area i have never been, probably never will again, but for the moment, it's the best place in the world, b/c im having great times with great friends

u wont remember some unimportant dates or math equations, the names of random professors, or even the classroom u were in, but u will remember the night u and yer friends went somewhere, did something crazy, and exactly who was there"

I love you brother, in this life and the next...

Always and Forever, and Beyond

Best Friends...
